A BLACK MALE ACHIEVEMENT INITIATIVE

The Southern University and A & M College System’s Honoré Center for Undergraduate Student Achievement was created to undertake an important challenge with funding from the State of Louisiana and other sources: namely, to reverse the trend of fewer African American males graduating from college, while also increasing the number of male certified classroom teachers in urban settings. A 3rd cohort of male 2014 graduates from New Orleans area high schools will be recruited for the initiative’s third year demonstration project that will provide added support to complete a college education at the Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) campus.
